Are you looking for HUMANE raccoon trapping in Cordova, TN?  Have raccoons torn into your attic, your crawl space and even your swimming pool?  We understand how these little guys can irritate homeowners in the Cordova area.  With their odd, handlike paws and sharp teeth, they can tear their way into almost any home.  They can also damage your yard and spread garbage throughout your neighborhood.  A raccoon can definitely be an aggravating little visitor!

Raccoons can also damage your attic insulation with feces and urine, especially during baby season!  Usually a raccoon is just looking for a place to nest, and your attic is safe and warm to them.  But an attic restoration can be necessary after you have had a raccoon in there, and restorations can be very expensive depending on the damage a raccoon has done. 

Raccoons can also tear apart your HVAC and even water heaters. They are very strong and can easily tear through your shingles and soffits.  Once an animal, even a smaller animal has been in your attic, it has left its scent.  This scent will attract other animals, including raccoons!

We are Cordova's premier professional raccoon removal company. Our technicians are skilled in the humane trapping and removal of problem raccoons, plus many other aspects of wildlife removal including Squirrel Removal and Rat Removal.  We are your local one stop shop for raccoon trapping and exclusion!

Raccoons are nocturnal, which means they are active at night.  An adult raccoon will average two to three feet long and can weigh up to twenty pounds They will eat just about anything, including your garbage!  They usually breed in February or March and have a 60 day  gestation.  Raccoon babies are born from March to June and open their eyes at around 3 weeks. The babies are usually weaned at two to three months old  Raccoons can nest in many places, including trees, chimneys, burrows, sewers, attics, and even your garage.

Now if a raccoon does have babies, you will hear sounds almost like a human baby crying.   When our technician encounters a mother raccoon and babies in the attic, he will often use a paste or a fluid to evict them instead of using traps. The mother raccoon will react to the eviction fluid by moving her babies.  However, sometimes the female will move her young to another area of the structure.  If that happens, we can re-apply the eviction fluid until the family has successfully moved out of the attic.



If you think you may have raccoon babies, NEVER try to remove the raccoons yourself as mother raccoons can be fiercely protective.  Always call a wildlife professional to deal with wildlife and their babies.  Our skilled technicians are trained to remove mother and baby raccoons safely and humanely.

At Apex Wildlife Control, we do everything in our power to keep mother and babies together.  We usually try to trap the mother separately from the babies in a different trap.  We do this because a mother raccoon can accidentally harm or even kill her babies in her frenzy to escape the trap.  However, in the case of orphaned raccoons, our technicians can transport these babies to one of several licensed rehabilitators in the area.  We only use rehabilitators who are licensed by the State Of Tennessee. These rehabilitators are experts in raising the raccoon babies in order to be released gently into the wild when they are old enough to take care of themselves.

We do not advise the trapping of raccoons by someone who is not a licensed wildlife technician.  Transporting a wild animal without a wildlife license can bring harsh fines and even jail time.  However, if you have trapped a raccoon in a trap that you own, we can also relocate this raccoon for you as well. 

Wildlife control is not an exact science in methods but our technicians will perform an inspection and provide a complete solution to eliminate your raccoon problem. Our highly trained technicians will also provide you with a thorough assessment and an outline of the actions they will take to resolve the issue. If the technician encounters any issues along the way, he will adapt and utilize alternate methods until the problem is resolved.

Most raccoons are friendly towards humans and are unbothered by their presence. It’s very tempting to leave food outside for them to nibble on, especially if you’ve seen some in your backyard before. Remember they are still wild animals and can carry a variety of diseases and can become aggressive towards humans.

Raccoons will eat just about any type of plant or meat, which classifies them as an omnivore.  But what they really love is pet food, especially cat food!  Feeding your pets outdoors can attract raccoons, and once they know that food has been available at your home, they will hang around in hopes of finding more.  Raccoons are very intelligent and have good memories for places to find food.

Contrary to popular belief, raccoons do not truly hibernate in  winter.  They will "hole up" for days, weeks, or even months, depending on the weather. Their home range is anywhere from three to twenty square miles for males, but only one to five square miles for females. Home ranges may be less in urban areas where there is easier access to life requirements.
Raccoon will be attracted to any types of food, including your bird feeders, garbage cans and even garden crops.  Raccoons will roll up your sod for worms, grubs, and insects. Raccoons enter dwellings for shelter in the winter and to raise young in the spring and early summer. They often cause damage to vents and shingles when entering attics. When they enter chimneys, they will often sleep and even give birth on the damper in the fireplace. Typical entries are roof vents, louver vents, soffit vents, construction gaps, rotten fascia boards, and chimneys. Raccoons may even rip through the roof if the wood is soft.  Wood and even vinyl siding are no match for the sharp teeth and claws of a determined raccoon!
